DIY Succulent Candle Centerpiece

An easy-to-make centerpiece that will satisfy your urge to grow something during these cold, cold months!
I don't know if you're like me, but I have to have something growing inside my home during winter! This succulent centerpiece will brighten the interior of your home now and will easily transition to the outdoors when it gets warmer.
To get started, you will need a 12 inch terracotta saucer. You can leave it this natural color or you could paint it any color to go with your decor. I painted mine aqua!
Next, you will need a variety of small succulents. At this time of year, they are usually on sale at your garden center or big box store such as Lowe's. If any of your friends grow succulents, ask for some of their "babies!"
And, of course, you need some soil. I have found that succulents grow very well in this specially designed soil. You won't need very much so a small bag will do.
Grab one of these plastic trays that's made to go under the terracotta saucer when you're picking up your saucer. It will protect the surface of the table or furniture where you place your centerpiece.
And you will need a candle and a glass candle holder to put in the center of your creation. For more details on how I put it all together, click over to see the whole blog post where you'll also find how it looked after 6 months!
